Specialist food manufacturer, Healthy Food Brands has affirmed its commitment to innovation within the health food industry with the recruitment of a Product Development Manager.
Lizzy Cox joins the health food producer and distributor to oversee the development of product lines for the company’s owned brands including Free & Easy, PLj, The Really Interesting Food Company, Rayner’s and Honegar. Lizzy, whose experience spans high profile FMCG businesses including Kate’s Cakes and LSG Sky Chefs, will focus on expanding the consumer offering within key product ranges, while enhancing recipes for existing products within others.
Speaking of her appointment, Lizzy said: “Food has always been my passion. My fondest childhood memories involve food preparation with my mum – albeit often something wildly unhealthy but utterly delicious such as a batch of peppermint creams dyed purple with food colouring!
“Today, as back then, food is an integral element of family life, and we have the opportunity to bring products to the UK market which are wholesome and nourishing, and tick the ‘family friendly’ box too. I am hugely excited about the role that I will play in bringing fresh and nutritious new products to the UK market on behalf of Healthy Food Brands.”
Commenting on the appointment, Healthy Food Brands’ Managing Director, Cliff Moss said: “Our awareness, both as consumers and manufacturers, around the value of nutrition has changed the face of the UK’s health food industry, presenting us with the chance to create something truly outstanding for our customers.
“Lizzy brings invaluable know-how to Healthy Food Brands, and will be an asset as we look to future expansion. We are delighted to welcome her to the team.”
